NUCLEAR WATCH DemFromCt over at The Next Hurrah offers up an annotated nuclear option head count--the kind of concise, informative analysis that the mainstream media, for some reason, hasn't gotten around to providing.

Meanwhile, the People For the American Way (PFAW) has set up an interesting, tech-savvy nuclear alert system:

By giving us your cell phone number, we will text message you as soon as Senate Republicans trigger the "nuclear option." Embedded in that text message will be a link to the Senate switchboard. With the push of a couple buttons, your call--along with thousands of others--goes right through to the corridors of power demanding preservation of the filibuster.
No need to fear a barrage of cell phone harassment from PFAW if you sign up: You'll receive one--and only one--text message. At least that's the promise.
